I have just arrived back from Allen and Jessica’s wedding. It was this morning during the sunrise on the shores of Wildcat Lake near Lees-McRae. My roommate Dan came with me; we rode with Justin, who is working up on the Eastern Shore this summer as a boat captain at a camp. I was a groomsman, and it was a beautiful wedding. It was so wonderful to see everyone, but Vince wasn’t there since he was down in Bolivia.
I even saw Sarah. She had just returned from London and Paris. She’s doing great!
Dan (not my roommate) and I had a great talk as we slept outside under the stars. He and Abigail will marry on September 2nd. Charlie and Kate’s wedding is in two weeks.
I learned so much this weekend. It was very freeing to be around my friends, but it hurt Dan (my roommate) in perhaps the same way it hurt Marie. On the drive back he confessed that he wished he hadn’t come along, for seeing me with my college buddies made him feel like he didn’t really have any good friends at all.
I thought everyone had a college experience similar to my own, but perhaps I was one of the lucky ones.
